Boo You

Good morning!

It's time for a new challenge at City Crafter and this week the lovely Stella is hosting with a theme

"It's all about you"


The challenge is to create a project that has the word YOU in the sentiment (note: not your or you're)

Here's my card


I used one of the many free digital images from Here, coloured it with Copics and added dimensional gloss to the mushroom, which I cut twice so I could mount it over the frame


As you can see I also made a frame on my card using acetate


Our GD Davi and the team have more inspiration for you up on the City Crafter Blog and we're looking forward to seeing your entries this week

Have a beautiful day

AAA Cards

Hello...
I hope you are well...

Today I'm playing along with the challenge over at AAA Cards...


...Where the challenge is blending and here's my card


I pulled out a few distress inks along with some dies and blended twisted citron and blueprint inks on the leaves and hickory smoke for the little elephant... 


 My blog friend Diane sent me a cute elephant die and here I used the negative part to sponge ink through then took a black pen to add a few lines around his ears and for his eye



I don't know what it's like where you are but here we've had so much rain and it's very dark... The sun put in an appearance for 10 minutes and it was lovely but I think that's it for the rest of the day...

Thanks for looking in - Take care

No line colouring

Hello...

I've not been too good this week .... I somehow a trapped nerve in my back and the pain has meant a few sleepless nights... I'm feeling much better today though and as I was unable to get around I've been able get ahead on DT work whilst watching my husband fathom out the vacuum cleaner Lol!

I made a card today just for fun... Looking out of my window it's wet and gloomy so today's card is autumnal and bright


The pumpkin, apples and acorns were all from free colouring pages which I converted into png.files (transparencies) using Photo Shop. Then I was able to put them all together and create an arrangement in the Print Shop program and I reduced the opacity so I wouldn't get any harsh lines when printing - just a faint lines to guide me.
This is how it looked before altering the opacity and printing

 
After using my Copic Ciaos to colour the image, I added lots of Mod Podge Dimensional which is kind of hard to capture but eventually I did


The leaves were cut on my Cameo and then I used Distress Inks to colour them before glossing them up too


On another note we have kept the kitty... Now called Missy - She's settled in but still prefers the safety of being with Mikey...Ginger cat wants to be friends and he's so patient but so far she isn't having any of it and is keeping her distance


I hope you are having a good day...

Take care

City Crafter 325

Good morning!

Kirsty is hosting this week's challenge at City Crafter and the theme is
Black and White Party


This week we want to see your black and white projects suitable for a party/celebration such as Birthday, Graduation or any Happy occasion

This week I made a bottle tag


I used one of my Cameo cut kitties and dressed her with a bow, did some paint splatters, added some washi tape and a die cut congrats...


Our Guest Designer Davi and the City Crafter team have more inspiration for you up on the Blog and we hope you'll link up your black and white projects this week...

Talking of Kitties... We've acquired another one... It's early days yet, and we'll have to see how things go - She's not keen on Ginger cat so hides a lot and she looks like a baby version of Gipsy who we sadly lost earlier this year ... Here's a photo


Cute huh?

Have a lovely day

Sending Hugs

Hello...

I'm still playing with paints at the moment and have another little card to share


I get the same feeling of awe seeing watercolours pool into different shapes as I do when I see the magic of heating up embossing powder...
With paints no two things are ever the same and I love that


I love these colours too and I added some gold drawing ink though you don't really get to see the shimmer here..


This one is going to a blog friend and I hope she likes it

Wishing you all a wonderful day

~ Ros ~
